REP. DONNA EDWARDS ON CORPORATE FREE SPEECH, HEALTH CARE, WALL STREET, OIL SPILLS, IMMIGRATION, AFGHANISTAN AND OBAMA
Completing her first full term in Congress, Maryland Democrat Donna Edwards has earned a national reputation and following as someone who does her homework and speaks her mind. She rejoins us to chat about, among other topics, her constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Courtâs recent ruling in Citizens United that corporations enjoy the First Amendment right to spending freely on independent advertising in elections.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM?
The juvenile justice system developed because, as a society, we recognized that youth are developmentally prone to making mistakes â even grievous ones â but should be given the chance to turn their lives around. Yet over the years, there has been a push by legislation and prosecutorial discretion to treat more and more juvenile offenders more punitively as adults, with negative consequences both for the youth and society, argues Liz Ryan, director of the Campaign for Youth Justice. (Host: Angela Davis)

A TRUE STORY OF WAR, FORGIVENESS AND RECONCILIATION
Homer Steedleyâs first kill as an American soldier in Vietnam was Hoang Ngoc Dam. Homer recovered a journal and other mementoes from Dam and sent them home to the US. Tormented by his war experience, thirty-five years later Homer fished out Damâs journal and set out to return it Damâs family. Ex-Marine and award-winning author Wayne Karlin joined Homer on his journey back to Vietnam, where Homer joined Damâs village in at last providing a proper burial to the man heâd killed for a cause long since forgotten. Karlin recounts this remarkable story in Wandering Souls: Journeys With The Dead And The Living In Viet Nam. (Host: Mark Cohen)
